2374365 - Workflow Skip Logic - Employee Central


  • The workflow initiator must approve the request despite being the first approver instead of being skipped.
  • Example: the Secondary Manager of an employee initiates a workflow wherein:
                  - Approval Type is "Role"
                  - Approval Role is "Secondary Manager".
  • Despite being the initiator and the first approver, the request appears in the To-Do tile of the Second Manager.
